20th Annual ROTARY GRAND PRIX
BENEFITING VOICE OF HOPE
11130 Malibu Drive
This year marks the 21st year for Preston Center Rotary Club’s Grand Prix-a-Kart race benefiting Voice of Hope Ministries!
The idea for the race was conceived by Preston Center Rotary Club members Bob Ikel (aka Ikelbahn) and Fred Seipp (aka Fast Fred) in 1992. Ikelbahn's friend operated a Dallas kart track and Fast Fred was an experienced driver in Porsche Club Racing with a previous tenure as the director of the Grand Prix of Dallas professional car race. The ingredients for a fun event came together and their discussions led to a Eureka! moment when the Preston Center Rotary Grand Prix was born.
The Rotary Grand Prix runs outdoors on a fun and exciting slick track, with speeds of up to 30mph.
Le Mans Enduro Racing
Your team has five drivers who race three full teams on the track at the same time. This is not a relay race! Computer tracking used for accurate time records. Each kart is individually timed, and the five times are combined. To win, leadership, communication, coordination, and time management are a must! Driving skills and teamwork will win the race! Can you do it?
Race of Champions
The TEN best times recorded over the course of the Le Mans racing will qualify for the final RACE OF CHAMPIONS. The winner of the RACE OF CHAMPIONS will have the glory of being the fastest kart driver of the day.
